Subject: Sweet Sounding Jerry Vocals!!!
I am apprehensive (God, that sounds wimpy) about listening to shows from '83 through '86 because of the detrimental effect that Jerry's health had on his performance. I went to between 10 and 15 shows a year myself during this period, plus about a dozen JGB. We would never stop going and never stop loving being there, but it was obvious that Jerry was really struggling physically. It can be pretty painful listening to the raspy and thin vocals and though he never lost the ability to sparkle on the strings, the grace and eloquence were definitely at an ebb.
Have no apprehensions about this beautiful recording of an excellent show!!! Right from the Cold Rain and Snow Jerry's vocals are clear, crisp and vibrant. I cannot think of another show from anywhere near this time on which he sounds so good vocally. Comes A Time is another highlight and just about everything else sounds sweet. With a board like this, I really focus on just how much these guys loved playing together and how well they listened to each other. This is a really collaborative performance, not off the charts but everybody gets a piece of the mix. The Scarlet/Fire is tight rather than epic but it has plenty of energy and creativity.
Oh yeah - I'm listening to the whole thing over again - check out Jerry's backing vocals on The Race Is On - unbelievable!!!!
Love the good ol' Grateful Dead - the sweet part of the dream is that we learned to sing "We will survive, we will survive" during those days and it came true for a lot of us. I'll have to check out the other shows on this run - any other suggestions? Jerry had lots of bright and happy days ahead of him. This show fills a tremendous personal niche for me, just like finding a Fall '94 show were he sparkles with all the joy and imagination we loved him for. Still haven't found that show for '95 but I'm always looking!! Thanks Charlie Miller - Time Magazine Man of the Year, long overdue!!! Never forget - Love will see you through
Subject: killer High Time and Comes A Time
yes this show was short, both days were...but check out the Hight Time and especially the Comes A Time, both very sweet...was a very fun weekend :)
Subject: Short show?
I haven't listened to anything yet, but apparently the Scarlet>Fire is good. Doesn't this one look a little short?
This should at least have Joani Walker listed in the keywords.
